Photo Comment

The sound of four roaring Twin Wasps could often be heard at Amsterdam during the mid and late 1990s, when DDA's Skymaster ZS-NUR (later PH-DDS) in 1950s KLM colours took to the air again. Unfortunately they were forced to dispose of this magnificent aircraft, due to very rigid regulations imposed by the Dutch aviation authorities. It departed for South Africa in late 2002 (as ZS-AUA). By 2017 it was still there, and although it hasn't flown since 2008/2009, there now is talk about a possible return to the Netherlands...
